The shadows curl their lips and kiss
My silent feet. They keep me safe.
In light I weigh, but here I float:
Adrift in myths and hidden fates.
From here I watch you fight for space.
I see the endless paths you take:
You circle, paw, and spiral down.
You know I’m here: within, beyond.
I ripple through your flitting mind,
Just hinting at the shape of words.
A fire as dark as Saturn’s heart,
A trick of whispers, mist and night.
I pad these forest tracks alone,
A shadow soft in shadow’s hold.
